Northview is the real deal in win over undefeated San Dimas; Charter Oak, Los Altos set up next week’s showdown

nviewNorthview’s big second half beats San Dimas: The road to the Valle Vista League football title once again runs through Northview High School.
Steven Comstock accounted for 385 yards and five touchdowns and the Vikings’ defense shutdown San Dimas in the second half to secure a 49-34 victory over the host Saints on Friday.

Los Altos ready for Charter Oak: Moments after Los Altos secured its 39-7 victory over Chino and found out that Charter Oak won as well to set up next week’s battle of unbeatens and likely for the Hacienda League title, Los Altos coach Dale Ziola could not contain his excitement between two 8-0 teams that are also 3-0 in league.
“Sweet,” exclaimed the visibly pumped coach. “It’s what it’s all about It’s just like the good old days. That’s awesome, It’s going to be a great week and it’s going to be a good game. We got a lot of respect for Charter Oak. It’s 1-1 (between) us the last two years since they recreated the Hacienda League, so it should be fun.”

Duarte looking good in Montview: First-place Duarte scored on its first play from scrimmage and never trailed in 49-10 win over Sierra Vista in a Montview League game on Friday night.
The win gives the Falcons (6-2, 3-0) a one-game lead over Nogales and Azusa with two games to play. The Falcons will visit Nogales next week in a game that will decide the order for the Montview League playoff spots.

Charter Oak not happy with sloppy win: In Hacienda League play, a solid defensive performance by Charter Oak helps it stay undefeated with a 20-6 win after a sloppy game at Diamond Ranch on Friday night.
The Panthers (3-5, 0-3) struggled for the second straight week to put up points before the fourth quarter. With 5:30 left in the game, Trey Green got in the end zone by hurdling a Chargers defender at the 2-yard line after a 25-yard pass from Justin Tong to cut the lead to eight.

    What a Friday night it’s shaping up to be! Amat in a must win.CO and LA in possible trap games before their big showdown next week. SD and NV playing for the VVL title and a top 3 seed. Salesian and Cathedral locking horns and that little game in the Trinity that has National title implications between Mater Dei and St. John Bosco.

    • FredJ

      Absolutely, a possible Charter Oak, Los Altos undefeated meeting next week would be so great. Hope they both pass the test tonight

      • tanksolot

        Probably the greatest rivalry in our area.Though CO has dominated to some extent over the past several meetings, this one next week will be like those old games in the late 90’s, early 2000’s – both teams would come out of the Miramonte league in 1st and 2nd, sweep the playoffs to meet again in the finals. Unfortunately LA isn’t in D4 with CO.

        • TruTH

          Those were the good old days. Everyone knew when Charter Oak played Los Altos it would come down to the 4th quarter. After Gano left, Charter Oak went on to win but Ziola has brought Los Altos back to their winning ways. The last two years the series is tied at 1-1. Los Altos winning two years ago and reaching the CIF championship game, and last year Charter Oak winning and themselves reaching the championship game. But that will be next week, this week both teams need to focus on their task at hand because both DR and Chino will come in wanting an upset.

          • tanksolot

            Yes, the good old days for sure. Had 3 kids going thru CO at the time.
            I don’t see either game being close tonight, really. Too much speed and momentum from both CO and LA.
            LA sure took it to CO 2 years ago. That big powerful running game was flat out scary. Colony was even scarier.

        • GO BIG BLUE

          Just like Charter Choke was never a D1 like Amat. Go LA

          • tanksolot

            Your point?

        • AMAT73

          tanks ,
          I thought CO vs AMAT is the greatest rivalry in the SGV . HAHAHA . Hopefully they both stay undefeated and CO wins back the #1 slot ???? You never know with these rankings , hahahaha . I’m sure you guys take of DR tonight , either way good luck tonight .

          • tanksolot

            Thanks 73. Good luck to BA as well.
            BTW- glad these rankings don’t mean sht.

          • AMAT73

            tanks ,
            Thanks , we need it tonight , and as I have always posted , the only ranking that matters is the CIF ranking at the end of the season !!!!! GO AMAT !!!!!!!!!!

          • FredJ

            Well if Amat doesn’t start winning soon, maybe they’ll be in the same playoff division in coming years.

          • AMAT73

            Come on Fred , you and I know that will never happen , and if it did , well why continue , you know the outcome . GO AMAT !!!!!! History tells us the what would happen .

          • Valley Athletics

            They won’t be . All you have to do is schedule tough D1 preseason games and win a couple games to stay in D1 .losing to mater Dei
            Gives you more points than beating a D 3 team . Amat will always schedule D1 teams so they are safe unless they go 1-9 for two years .

        • Spam Burger

          Bonita / San Dimas, Azusa / Gladstone, Northview / Covina, South Hills / West Covina would argue that.

          • tanksolot

            Maybe SH and WC, but a weak argument at best IMHO.

          • WCDan

            Tanksolot, not hardly a weak argument at all, you’ve gotta remember, SH/WC go back to the 70’s when they were in the Sierra League battling with Los Altos. The Sierra league in the mid 70’s was arguably the strongest league in the state, No doubt about the great intensity, and heated battles every year in the battle for Cameron ave between SH & WC.

          • AMAT73

            WC Dan ,
            That’s right , the old Sierra League was one of the strongest leagues around . 4 AAAA ball which was D-1 in today’s world . Strong from top to bottom and even included Fred’s beloved Edgewood ( more baseball than football ) . I believe LA beat AMAT in a playoff game back then .Great rivalries and even LP and AMAT would battle in preseason . Back then there was so much talent in the SGV and this area in particular , AMAT would draw from the publics of the area and SL teams would still be overflowing with talent .

          • WCDan

            Great points 73, SGV in the 60’s and 70’s was a mighty big fish bowl.

        • FredJ

          If the game were tonight, I’d probably take Los Altos because of Nevens. But I’d like to see of the Charter Oak QB has another big game tonight. That could change things.

          • tanksolot

            After the way the CO offence played last night, they better get some surprises ready for LA. Defense looked good, but DR assisted them with many many penalties. CO will really need bring it if they want to win.
            Good win for NV and BA!

    • Gus Ramos

      I was rooting for Bosco until the careless pass by their. Bosco QB that was intercepted. My Marine Corps mentality, when you are ahead late in the fourh quarter, you don’t give up your lead. If you do,get off the field and go sit at the end of the bench away from the rest of the team. I do not like Mater Dei except their shoulder logo,this is my unit in ‘Nam,1st Marine Division.

  • Spam Burger

    Off the local team subject for a second, but Mater Dei’s freshman O-Line:. There’s 6-foot-2, 270-pound Jeminal Leuta-Ulu; 6-3, 290-pound Kamuta Levvasa; 6-1, 290-pound center Tautai Marks; 5-11, 270-pound Martin Salazar, and 6-3, 260-pound Myles Murao.

    • Valley Athletics

      They also have a 200 pound running back who is fast .. Last years freshman team was also big and beat Bosco by 30 . Amat actually lost by 30 last season also to MD .

    • Coach Moose

      I saw a pic of that freshman line, wow!!

  • AMAT73

    Good luck to all the teams of the SGV for well played and injury free games tonight . LANCERS play smart , disciplined , and hard nose football . Get the W . Coaches keep it in the hands of the kids , let them win or lose the game , leave the gimmicks on the bus , kick to the end zone . GO AMAT !!!!!!

    • FredJ

      This is the game Amat has to have. They don’t want to go into next week needing a win over Chaminade to make the playoffs. If they win tonight, and they should, they’ve all but punched their ticket.

      • AMAT73

        You got that right Fred , I would just hate to see another one go down the drain due to poor coaching decisions , we’ve seen enough of that already this season .

        • FredJ

          Right, no cute stuff. No short kickoffs or surprise onside kicks. No fake punts, no going on fourth down on your own side of the field. Just keep it simple and take care of business. When you’re the better team, act like it.

          • Gus Ramos

            Well stated Fred. Bishop Amat has a kicker cable of kicking the ball every time into the end zone. Let the kid do his business. Every team wishes they could have such a capable kicker.

          • Valley Athletics

            Amat has been good on 4th downs all season . Went for one tonight near 50 yard line and got the first down .

      • Valley Athletics

        If they win tonight they are in playoffs and Alemany could be out with less than 500 win season . Beating JSerra and Servite was big in case it comes down to atlarge birth . JSerra and Tesoro have a good chance of not getting a birth. Tesoro has to finish top 2 and they are tied for third . Servite , SM and OLU are in race for Third . Servite needs a 3rd place finish . Otherwise they risk am at large birth .

        • FredJ

          Amat should get in even if they lose to Chaminade. But Chaminade is big because a win means Amat will probably avoid Bosc, Mater Dei, Centennial or Mission Viejo. If they lose to Chaminade, they likely get one of them in the first round.

          • Gus Ramos

            We might face Corona Centennial. There is anothe Centinnial is South Central Los Angles, they were very tough at one time.

          • Valley Athletics

            Will Bosco at 8-2 and a second place team be seeded above first place teams RC and MV who both could be 10-0 .? Technically they shouldn’t

      • Gus Ramos

        Fred, not a bad team for winning only 2 games, like you predicted. You must listen to me, Fred, been involved with C I F games since the 50’s, I don’t think you have quite reached 50! .Do you care to know the outcome of the election? I’ve been known on occasion to be wrong, I see 63%.

        • FredJ

          The election. Hillary in a landslide.

          • Gus Ramos

            We both are on the same page.

          • Gus Ramos

            Valley Athletics,thanks.

  • Valley Athletics

    Alemany has the talent . 6 players with offers .team is better than there record . Amats offense has to get back on track . defense has to watch out for the big plays from there big receiver and solid running back .. Goodluck and to a non injury game .

    • fb101

      POOR coaching DOOMED Alemany. How they did NOT throw to #1 all night is beyond me. Oh well, good win by the Lancers, time to focus on Alemany.

      • Valley Athletics

        Crowd was yelling Herringtions name .

        • fb101

          You DO know James Washington is the HC, right?

          • Valley Athletics

            Yeah . They where yelling because they want Herrington back .

          • fb101

            DH benefited from from warped sense of priorities by the principal. Once said principal left Alemany, the Pasadena kids mysteriously stopped getting to Mission Hills, DH split shortly thereafter…….

          • fast freddy

            Correct! They did it in all sports to keep the doors open.

          • fb101

            How does giving FREE tuition to a few athletes ‘benefit’ the school as to keeping the doors open? IF it was SO beneficial, why wasn’t the practice continued?

          • AMAT73

            fb101,
            Benefits by having a football team that contends for a league title every year . Large attendance at home games , CIF playoffs , gate money for these is a nice piece of change . 50/50’s can reach 3-4 grand at a packed game .It adds up to some nice money for the school . All this depends on the administration and how much they bend . As you can tell the administrations at MD , SJB , bend like trees in a tornado . I believe the administration at Alemany has changed and probably the view on free tuition for transfers and recruits has also .

  • Gus Ramos

    St. John Bosco is playing Like Bishop Amat. Bosco was ahead by two touch downs only to give it back to Mater Dei.

    • Spam Burger

      What a great game though..If playoffs hold true to form these 2 will meet in the semifinals, with the winner of Centennial / Mission Viejo waiting for them. This has got to be one of the more talented D1playoff classes in a long time.

      • Henry

        is there a way MV can avoid centennial? just saying…xD

        • Spam Burger

          Upsets along the way can always happen. I don’t see CIF dropping SJB after the loss last night even though Rancho and MV both won big.

      • Valley Athletics

        Second and third seed will be on same side of bracket . Which puts CC and Bosco on same side if they are seeded 2 and 3 . Don’t know if cif will seed a second place team ahead of a first place team with no losses like Rancho an MV .

        • Spam Burger

          Don’t know why I thought it was 1&3 and 2&4.

      • Gus Ramos

        Last yeae wasn’t too shaby.I thought Saint John Bosc was a better team than this year.

  • Spam Burger

    Hopefully San Dimas and Northview end up on the opposite side of the brackets.

  • Valley Athletics

    Amat sophs had a good game . Archuleta 190 yards and 3tds . Jaden Allen 108 yards receiving and a TD . Chris Lopwz 118 yards rushing and 2 tds . Deven Jarvis .with An interception with a good return and a couple nice kickoff returns .

    • Gus Ramos

      Did Bishop Amat replace the starters with their second string in the second half?
      When I viewed the score, Alemany had only 7 points, what happened?

      • Valley Athletics

        Around last quarter

  • Conq ’76

    I believe Coach Lou may have been playing a little rope-a-dope last night against DR only putting up 20. I was at LA v Chino but was surprised as I followed CO v DR score. Just sayin LA don’t get comfortable. CO will be coming out with both barrels and I am sensing some sort of gimmick play their first offensive series looking for a quick strike. I would suggest having Nevens play a little deep safety the first defensive series.

    Great game against Chino, line play was aggressive, I don’t know what Cal Preps was thinking…

  • FredJ

    FOUR LEAGUE TITLE GAMES THIS WEEK
    Charter Oak, Los Altos for Hacienda
    Duarte, Nogales for Montview
    Ayala, Glendora for Palomares
    Pomona, La Puente for Miramonte

    That’s a solid week.

  • LA Homer

    CO, LA will mean more to LA because they don’t get all the Hype like CO does…..transfers fall out of the trees over there and LA is a bunch of local kids that probably could have played anywhere, they played together in the youth level and it’s translated in high school and choose to stay at there local school……win or lose LA is going knows there in for a fight and are up to it.

    • Valley Athletics

      They could be last years San Marino .

      • Hammer91

        No

  • Gus Ramos

    What was the final Bishop Amat score? I saw 48 then 38 posted. According to many, Bishop Amat wasn’t suppose to have much of a team this year. What ever takes place after playing Chamanade, Bishop Amat can declare a sucessful season. Let’s learn from our mistakes and move forward.

  • Go Big Blue

    Actually Archuleta had 2 TDs both to #81 Jarren Ford in the 1st qtr for Amat.

  • WCDan

    WC “Clearly the third best”? Nothing is clear yet in the Hacienda, but the next two weeks will clear things up.
